A pleasant light aromatic profile but this whisky has not matured in very active casks.
Berry Bros. & Rudd
1998, 14 Years Old
Nose: Prickly. Grassy. Freshly cut grass. Angelica, lemon balm. Vanilla wafer. Touch of mint. Refreshing.
Palate: Sweet and smooth at first. Getting fizzy. Light and refreshing. White peach. Pear Williams. The alcohol is not totally mastered. Numbing sensation.
Finish: Dry, tangy, burning.
Comment: A pleasant light aromatic profile but this whisky has not matured in very active casks.
Nose: Autumnal, piles of dry leaves, drying grass cuttings. Fruit notes develop, peach and apricot. Roasted cob nuts.
Palate: Sweet peach syrup. Very clean and fresh. Water softens the alcohol nicely\rand brings out peach cobbler and baked apples.
Finish: Clean and herbal.
Comment: Without water this is a little unbalanced, but with water it transforms into a gorgeous dram.
